Inclusive football came to Ternopil region

In Zbarazh, in the Ternopil Region, on the basis of the Zbarazh Lyceum, the second cycle of the project of the Ukrainian Football Association "Inclusive Football Sections" was completed (coach Ruslan Yushchyshyn, coordinator of the Ternopil Region Football Association Vasyl Zatorskyi).

"The classes contribute to the strengthening of children's health, foster a love for sports. Both boys and girls discover leadership qualities, cohesion and mutual respect in training. They have learned to support each other, and this significantly improves their psycho-emotional state. The classes gave them confidence in their abilities and faith in themselves. I want to thank the organizers for such invaluable experience and new knowledge, as well as for the equipment that helped to implement interesting educational ideas," said Ruslan Yushchyshyn.
